Leafs sign Mark Fraser to one-year deal

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Monday that they've re-signed defenseman Mark Fraser to a one-year contract.

Fraser, 25, split the 2011-12 American Hockey League season between the Toronto Marlies and Syracuse Crunch, tallying seven assists, a plus-15 rating and 67 penalty minutes in 45 games. The 6-4, 220-pound player helped lead the Marlies to the 2012 Calder Cup finals, posting three assists and 31 penalty minutes in 17 playoff games.

Fraser was acquired by the Maple Leafs from the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 27, 2012 in exchange for Dale Mitchell.

The native of Ottawa, Ontario, appeared in four games with the New Jersey Devils in 2011-12, collecting 14 penalty minutes. Fraser has played 98 career NHL games, all with the Devils, posting eight points (three goals, five assists) and 86 penalty minutes.
